Re: Buying a car without the Master Key
If it's any help, mine doesn't have the brown key but the guy who sold it to me (an Alfa dealer friend of mine) had a spare set of keys (the two red ones) ordered and coded for me. I think all they did was open the remote key up and code the car to the key manually. Without the brown key I think there's a limit as to how many red keys the car will accept but unless I'm totally careless, I shouldn't be needing any more keys done and should not need a brown key any time soon.
